2014 Seneca bigfoot leveling system

Been using our Seneca quite a bit, 7500 miles already. Noticed our leveling system when using the auto function always lifts the front quite a bit even if the front is already higher than the rear. If the front happens to be lower than the rear if takes the front tires right off the ground then raises the rear to match. Tried raising the rear manually then lowering it back down with the air suspension deflated making the rear even lower to start. It still raises the front too far. Then lifts the rear. In most instances it just needs to stabilize not lift the whole rig. Have to carry another step because sometimes the first step well over a foot off the ground. The rig is level just too high with the tires off the ground.

It's as though the calibration is off. I'm about ready to go through the whole calibration process in the manual. Anyone else had this issue.

I have a 2014 Melbourne with the Big Foot system and I've noticed the same thing. It always seems to start with the front jacks and uses them as a reference. I don't think mine is as bad because it only seems to raise the front jacks an inch or two and then levels with the back ones. This weekend both front wheels were off the ground but the ground wasn't very level.

Calling Big Foot is a good idea. They are knowledgeable and customer friendly. It could easily be a calibration issue. When we had our Greyhawk, we were in some really sloped locations. A Big Foot told rep told us standing on the pads (wheels off the ground) was not an issue as far as weight is concerned. What you lose is stability. I like the wheels on the ground. I still blocked them just to add to the stability.

Just guessing - it's sounds like yours might not know where "0" is, and that would be a calibration issue.
